In this week’s parsha we are inspired by the daughters of Tzlafchad.
Parshat Pinchas teaches us the significance of being significant – through our census and through our inheritance rights.
This week’s Torah reading mentions “bikkurim” — first fruits.
In Parshat Pinchas, we meet the five daughters of Tzelafchad: Machlah, No’ah, Chaglah, Milkah and Tirtzah. When Tzelafchad dies, these daughters petition Moshe to grant them their father’s inheritance since he had no sons.
We’re recreating a famous Torah scene!
This week’s Parsha, Parshat Chukat, includes a very enigmatic episode:
Life wandering the desert can be tough. There is work to be done in the Temple of Meeting, there is wandering to be done, and there is Manna to be eaten. The Israelites begin to rebel in this week’s Torah reading.
